SIPs and Green Building Programs

Energy Star - The Energy Star program aims to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption of electronics, appliances, and even homes. According to the EPA, homes account for 15% of energy consumption nationwide. New homes that demonstrate a certain level of energy saving improvements earn the Energy Star label. Building with SIPs substantially cut home energy consumption, making it easy to reach Energy Star qualifications; 
  • An Energy Star labeled home qualifies up to 34 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points under the Energy and Atmosphere category.
